    Hello all you lucky brides!
    My name is Jackie and I was engaged in December of 2006. I have my heart set on a destination wedding, hoever my fiance Mark is dead set against it. But I don't feel any other wedding is right for me. So hopefully we can come to a compromise! Until then, I'll be lurking in the shadows and learning from you ladies about destination weddings in hopes of planning my own!

    Nice to meet you all!

        What are his reasons for not wanting a DW? Maybe we can help you talk him into it if we knew why he doesn't want one!

          Hi Jackie, sorry to hear about your situation. Maybe if he saw some of the wonderful pics than maybe he would change his mind.

          Welcome Jackie.
          Sorry your fi doesn't want a destination wedding. Is he set on getting married in a church or does he have family that is pressuring him to get married at home? I hope you are able to have a great wedding, at home or on a beach.
          Happy Lurking!

            Welcome Jackie!

            We will just have to convince your FH otherwise... and sway his opinion to the DW theme! What is it about a DW he doens't like? Once he sees all the beaches and beauty he'll want it :P hehe
